Tomorrow will be day 2 and if the doctor says so, WE CAN HOLD HER! Poor baby girl she just doesn't understand why we aren't picking her up. Her eyes have spoken a million words today. Words of pain, confusion and just longing to be cuddled. She did fairly well during the night. No morphine until this morning and then we gave Tylenol then had to give morphine again. She moved her legs fine yesterday. The doctors and nurses in recovery and her in PCU were all pleased with how well she moves them. But this morning we noticed that they are very stiff and if you try to move them her whole body whences in pain. The good thing is that if we touch her very sensitive little feet she moves them like it tickles. So we know there is feeling there. Because this is progressive since this morning, they have called the doctor and they will be coming by.
The picture of Annabel and her pretty pink flowers from the West family is above. What we didn't know was that no live flowers are allowed her at TCH. I am so said because they were such beautiful daisies and they went through all the trouble to bring them to her on this freezing cold day! Thank you to Kevin and Michele for the endless amount of meals you prepared, Vivian's gold and the sweet, pink flowers.
Hopefully tomorrow she will be gently upright with some precious, happy smiles! We he says we can hold her we may never put her back down. We appreciate the prayers and we are so grateful that she has done this well.
